We recently received a job posting for a company using a SitePal on their website. These jobs are usually exciting because not only can the voice-over content vary from company to company, but the SitePals themselves are also quite diverse.

Similar to talking heads, the animated SitePal, paired with a professional voice-over, is able to convey the website owner's message to customers and prospects visiting the website.

Here's how SitePal describes their service to visitors that click on the "What is SitePal" tab:

SitePal is an Internet-based subscription service that allows you to create a wide-array of animated speaking characters, which can be added to your website for a variety of professional and personal applications. SitePal provides a rich, easy-to-use to interface that makes the process of designing, managing and publishing your characters a breeze! Absolutely no programming knowledge is required to use SitePal. However, SitePal does interface with various programming languages for those who are technically inclined.

As I mentioned above, one of the best features is their diversity, including all ethnicities, social groups, ages, and of course, both the male and female genders. When a voice talent is hired for the job of voicing for a SitePal, their voice-over can be influenced by the SitePal's hair style, clothing, and even their very being - I've seen a leprechaun there, so the possibilities are endless! There's a SitePal for every company, and certainly, a voice talent for every SitePal.

Happy Boxing Day,

Stephanie
